Is it $12.75 regardless of how much you buy?
Honestly I’m not sure, I’ve only ordered online twice but I believe it was the same delivery charge both times. Maybe it goes by mileage we are the next town over from the store.
I would have less of an issue with the delivery fee if they delivered the right items AND if they didn’t forget items. Doesn’t make much sense to pay for delivery when you have to go to the store for missing items.
... Many stores allow you to order online and pick up curbside-- you pop the trunk and they put your order in. No delivery fee. Might that work for you?
We tip at least 20% to 25% depending. Sometimes more. For a small order I might give as much as the order cost in tip. And there's generally a service charge that's a few dollars IIRC.
We rarely order groceries though as I much prefer choosing them myself (produce) but there have been a few times we did order through Instacart or Shipt.
I believe online items (through Instacart for example) are more expensive if you order online vs in the store so that is the cost of delivery so to speak.
We tip generously always but especially now during the pandemic. They are risking their safety to deliver to us and we appreciate that and show it. Actions speak volumes.
